This thesis aims to explore various possibilities in grid-structures by introducing atypical line geometries and examine its feasibility in a built environment. The proposition is derived from the larger purpose of adapting native design characteristics in modern built environment. Focusing on the Asian context, one of the essential...

During the early stages of the construction process of a building, the potential impact of design decisions is at its greatest. One of the reasons is the lack of computational tools at these stages. The main objective of this research project was the expansion of StructuralComponents by the development of a parametric real-time computational...

The development of computational tools to aid with early-stage design of buildings is an emerging topic of great value. Developing a good conceptual design for a building is important because it can save a great amount of time and resources over the entire building process. This report discusses the project StructuralComponents 6, a continuation...

The world of molecular biology is composed by a complex network of interactions that are analogous to electric circuits. They govern the functions required for life, from metabolism to locomotion. In these networks, the presence of network motifs were identified, recurring elements supposedly kept by evolution. One of them is called the...

The role of the architect as a “master builder”, or someone who possessed a deep knowledge about the materials and ways to use them, has recently disappeared in favour of technical specialisation. The distancing of the architect from the actual construction site coincides with the emergence of digital design environments that provide seemingly...

Comparing spreadsheet files is a new, unexplored research domain in computer science. Methods for regular file comparison are not straightforwardly applicable to spreadsheet files, because they are fundamentally different. Spreadsheets are binary files, the structure of spreadsheets is two-dimensional, they contain both data and calculations,...

’De Watersnood van 1953’, the largest Dutch flood in recent history, caused the death of 1795 people in the Netherlands directly from the flood conditions, while in the UK, 315 were recorded. Most of them were among those whose residence collapsed due to high water depth, quick rise rate of the water or strong flow velocity. Based on historical...

The superyacht industry faces an increasing trend of larger dimensions, more open spaces, larger hull openings and more exotic shapes. This puts more effort on the structural design and especially for superyacht longitudinal stiffness is important, since the luxurious interior and delicate systems installed in a superyachts are not allowed to...

The aim of this thesis is to present a design for a bicycle and pedestrian bridge which meets the requirements of Circular Economy; by incorporating strategies such as design for disassembly and modularity a structure is created which improves upon the long-term value of existing bridges. Circular Economy has in recent years begun to replace the...

Durban is the third largest city of South-Africa, located in the province of KwaZulu-Natal. The city suffers from severe floods from time to time, finding its cause in both the Indian ocean as well as the Umgeni river. The eThekwini municipality wishes a better insight in the occurrence of these floods and searches for a structural solution to...

Gulikers, Tom (author)
Engineering fields such as aerospace rely heavily on the Finite Element Method (FEM) as a modelling tool. In combination with the scale and complexity of the structures typically involved here, computational cost remains a traditional issue. To perform FEM analyses of such structures efficiently nonetheless, engineers rely on techniques such as...

The numerical simulation of brittle failure with nonlinear finite element analysis (NLFEA) remains a challenge due to robustness issues. These problems are attributed to the softening material behaviour and the iterative nature of the Newton-Raphson type methods used in NLFEA. However, robust numerical simulations become increasingly important,...

This paper is a representation of the research that has been performed with regards of the weight estimation of the Flying V and its conventional reference aircraft. The goal is to establish the feasibility of the Flying V as a structural concept. In order to do this a structural model of the Flying V has been created, as well as the design and...

This paper presents the development of a feasibility analysis tool for the Architecture Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry called StructuralComponents 5.0. It is the fifth paper in a series of developments starting with Breider (2008), which discussed modelling and analysing 2D tall buildings with an emphasis on quick generation and...

The adoption of optimization algorithms has been slower in conceptual design compared to the later design phases. The choices made during the conceptual design phase have a large impact on the performance of the result. This research aims to find out why it is so hard to use optimization in conceptual design. Then a method is proposed to solve...

Traditional reinforced concrete tunnels show limits regarding large spans in the transverse direction. There was a lack of knowledge whether the steel-concrete-steel (SCS) sandwich tunnel can be a solution for tunnels with extreme large spans. Research was needed to understand the structural response of a large span SCS tunnel to the load...

When performing a piece of music, there are certain ways in which performers turn the score into their own musical interpretation of it. The difference between what is written and what is played can be substantial, and can vary between performers and even individual performances. In this thesis we examine what information can be gained from...

This thesis continues the work performed by Ferreira and Almeida on the topic of weight and cost reduction of composite multi-spar torsion-bending boxes. The goal is to find the influence of changes to the structural configuration on the resulting weight of said torsion-bending boxes. Using analytical methods, combined into the BoxSolver MATLAB...

With increasing fuel prices and growing interest in environmentally friendly transportation the aerospace industry has set ambitious targets for all electric flight. At the same time there is growing interest in the rotorcraft market that is expected to grow significantly in the next decades. Although the technology for all-electric flight is...
